For a few days, the home of the Seattle Seahawks and Sounders will be an official voting center for the August primary.

SEATTLE — CenturyLink Field is an official voting location for residents looking to register to vote, get a replacement ballot, and receive other assistance from elections staff for the August primary and November general elections. 

The voting center at CenturyLink Field will be open Aug. 1, Aug. 3, and Aug. 4 for the Aug. 4 primary. Drive-up services will be available.

"We could not pass up another opportunity to share with our fans and residents how critical it is to get registered, cast your ballot, and stand up for what you believe in – no matter what that might be."
